Won't Miss #26 - idols
There seems to be a never-ending supply of cookie-cutter idols in the manufactured "star" business. I know the same occurs all around the world, but the Japanese ones are less polished than those I've had the misfortune to catch a glimpse of from other countries. When you see them dance on T.V., they look like they're fighting some sort of rhythm impairment disorder. They also all look pretty much the same and sing quite similarly. They are like milk in that they seem to reach their expiration date rapidly and require a fresh replacement after a short time.
I won't miss the Japanese idols and the culture surrounding them.
